Tenninkyo (天人峡, Tenninkyō) is a small, somewhat run down hot spring resort in the back of a valley in Daisetsuzan National Park, not far from Asahidake Onsen.

From the end of the village, there is a trail to the spectacular, 270 meter high Hagoromo Falls. It takes less than ten minutes to reach the base of the falls on foot. If you continue on the trail, you will come to another waterfall, and there are also hiking trails, which lead deeper into the mountains.

Access

By car, Tenninkyo Onsen can be reached in about one hour from Asahikawa City, Asahikawa Airport or Biei. Regular scheduled bus service to Tenninkyo Onsen was discontinued in July 2011. The resort's leading ryokan, the Tenninkaku, provides its guests with a free bus service to/from Asahikawa Station (advance reservation required).
